Today I am going to brag a little (because up to this point I did not have much to brag about).

Amazon notified me that out of their hundreds of thousands of authors I rank 7,111  in the HORROR catagory.

I have to thank my “Adirondacks Screaming” book for that.

My other books are not horror. Each one has a description attached and you can read several of the first pages of each book for free.

Overall, for thrillers, I rank 21,200 (which I think probably isn’t too bad).

Here is a link to my author page:

My deepest thanks to those of you who have purchased my books.

Oh yes, almost forgot. You can loan them to a friend’s E-reader after you purchase them.

    Congrats Wally!!! That’s awesome! I was reading your about section and MAN you tried retiring quite a few times lol. What a wide scale of jobs and experiences you’ve had.

      Yes. I tried all the jobs I could. I was lucky to live in an era when the country was growing and jobs were had by anyone who wished to take a chance. I was well rewarded for my risk. But I failed at retiring! Couldn’t seem to get the grasp of it. That must be the reason I keep four blogs going at the same time. Thanks for visiting and following “The Short Stories of Waldo.” You be good today and enjoy life. Keep the artwork and wire art going. You have a talent.

        I just enjoy most anything I can do. We considered moving to Tucson and I couldn’t wait to hunt gems in the mountains. We moved to Florida and I found 4,000 year old bones in the ground. We lived in NY and there were arrowheads and other historic items in the earth. I had to work 16 hours a day and found joy in the treasures buried in computer code and business records. I guess I am just a nut case.
